The Rise of the Boomerang Generation + How to Manage Finances in a Multi-Generational Household

For the last several decades, parents have been welcoming their adult children home after moving out for college. It’s become an accepted way for young adults to save up and start their lives off with a little less financial burden, and we’re currently seeing that trend rise as more young adults join the boomerang generation.

The boomerang generation is a generation of young adults who return to live with their parents. This group has continued to grow over the last decade, but the trend isn’t totally unique to the current generation of recent grads. In 1985, 54 percent of 18–24-year-olds and 11 percent of 25–34-year-olds lived with their parents. While the rate of 18–24-year-olds living with their parents has stayed relatively consistent, the U.S. has seen a steady rise in 25–34-year-olds living with their parents, reaching 17 percent in 2019.

The rise of the boomerang generation really began following the Read the rest

This Black-Owned Pizza Restaurant Sources Ingredients From Other Black Restaurants

The restaurant industry has suffered greatly due to the spread of COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus, pandemic. While the niche field has been labeled an “essential” business to remain open for take-out and delivery amid the health crisis, many have still been forced to use other strategies to stay afloat during the viral outbreak. One entrepreneur in Indianapolis was able to help other Black businesses as she makes her signature pizzas.

Que Wimberly is the owner of The Missing Brick pizzeria, where she makes what she describes as “Indy”-style pizza that differs from the traditional and popular like Chicago or New York. She opened her eatery because of the lack of Black ownership surrounding a food many in her community enjoyed and because she wanted to make it with her own unique style.

“One of the things that Indianapolis didn’t have was a craft pizza place that was … Read the rest

For many, college is a door to a prosperous future, and it elevates feelings of excitement and brings a taste of freedom. It’s a younger student’s chance to become an adult, learning both life and book smarts. It’s an older student’s opportunity to broaden their horizons and grow their passion or career. For whoever is paying for college, it’s often a wave of financial stress and uncertainty. When Americans owe a collective $1.5 trillion in student debt, you’re probably wondering how to save for college.

Who Should Get Priority Access To COVID-19 Vaccine?

Some COVID-19 vaccines are showing positive signs of working, leading many to wonder who should get first access to a vaccine.

According to MarketWatch, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials and an outside advisory committee are brainstorming the rollout of a COVID-19 vaccine. The agency is also considering giving priority access to the vaccine to several groups including key national security officials, high-risk individuals, and essential workers.

However, some are wondering if Black and Latino Americans, the most affected races, should get priority access. Philanthropist Melinda Gates, the wife of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, floated the idea in an interview with Time Magazine.

“In the U.S., that would be Black people next, quite honestly, and many other people of color. They are having disproportionate effects from COVID-19,” Gates told Time.

She added the next step would be to prioritize those with underlying conditions, older people, … Read the rest
